Took over an hour to walk there from the upper car park. With rests it would take longer. The view from the top is incredible. The walkway is mostly raised above the boggy ground and is made of railway sleepers covered with wire mesh. There are also stretches of rocky path.

This walk, hike is fabulous! It is confusing from the upper car park. The sighs show a red, blue and yellow. None go to the Torc Mt trail. Go out the car park going up (left) go to the loop sign and go left again at the gold hiking sign. Within 15 minutes up the paved road, you will see... More

This is a good walk through the grounds watching Kerry cattle and Deer on the way to the Falls. Don't be put off by the notices as you can walk up and down the same path. this is much shorter the the circular path.

Waterfalls are brilliant, Climb is up steps behind waterfall. The views are worth the climb. No suitable for elderly as there is very uneven ground and steps

If you like to walk, and if you like to climb very steep steps, this is the walk for you! The small waterfall is enchanting. Do not stop there and turn around: walk all the way.

Did not intentionally set out to do this walk but having climbed the waterfall, we just kept going. The views are stunning, the walk is steep in places but not difficult and worth every effort. Next time, we would take lunch as it's a bit of a trek back to the car park!

Pretty park and fun to hike. You can do different trails that are all clearly marked. Don't bother getting a map at Muckross House (it's pretty useless). Instead drive to the Torc Waterfall and you'll find some clearly marked trails. I'm sure there are other trails you can hike but from the main entrance they were a bit hard to... More
